It has been shown in the majority of patients affected by ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) they have high levels of inflammation, compromised blood flow and low oxygen delivery to certain parts of the body.
HBOT has been shown in clinical data to help decrease inflammation and reintroduce oxygen and blood flow to affected areas, including affected regions in the brain. This has demonstrated to help improve overall functioning, receptive language, speech and eye contact scores. Additionally, it has been shown to help decrease irritability, hyperactivity and inflammatory markers including TNF-alpha and C-reactive protein levels.
Out of the 62 children with autism who received hyperbaric treatment at 1.3 atm and 24% oxygen for 40 hourly sessions had significant improvements in overall functioning, receptive language, social interaction, eye contact, and sensory/cognitive awareness compared to children who received slightly pressurized room air.
